Ed Balls Attacked for Expense Abuses

The Sunlight Centre for Open Politics has bought advertising space in the Yorkshire Post, Yorkshire Evening Post, Morley and Outwood Observer and Wakefield Express, attacking Ed Balls for expenses abuses including flipping his house three times, claiming for a remembrance poppy wreath and taking an £89,000 payment for producing two pamphlets for the Smith Institute in 9 months.  As Guido’s co-conspirators know, the Smith Institute charity was a front for Gordon Brown and was criticised by the Charity Commission for supporting Brownite political projects. Gordon Brown’s allies Lord Myners and Wilf Stevenson resigned from the Smith Institute following the report and it was widely perceived to be a slush fund for Brown’s leadership ambitions.

The advert includes footage of Ed Balls at Oxford University wearing a Nazi uniform.  This is what they are seeing in the local press tonight:

What will probably have more play with C1, D1 voters is the privileged lifestyle of Ed Balls, his public school education, privileged drinking society partying (in Nazi uniform) at Oxford, on to Harvard, working for the Financial Times before going to the Treasury to serve as Gordon’s aide and trusted henchmen.  The milking of expenses by him will play very badly with voters when they know that between him and Yvette they have a household income of £300,000.  Claiming £33 for a remembrance day poppy is frankly a disgrace.

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
